Strict Gender Roles For Boys More Important Than Having a Father?

Strict Gender Roles For Boys More Important Than Having a Father? April 13, 2018

Lori Alexander is sounding off to a book that’s been in the media lately – The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It by Warren Farrell . Farrell apparently suggests that the majority of the problem is the lack of fathers in the lives of their sons. Lori claims it’s more that the strict gender roles of the past have been abandoned.

Reading through the reviews the book sounds interesting, but I seriously doubt Lori’s take is the reason why boys are not thriving in our culture. She admits she’s only about a quarter of the way through, but she’s ready to judge the book without reading on.

What do you think? What is responsible for the challenges of raising males these days? I’m sure it has nothing to do with adhering to limited bounded gender roles.
